Installation Notes:

Install using the Uptime Plugin Manager

  1. Edit the file [uptime_dir]\GUI\ack\ack.php by providing the following:

$user = ‘admin’; $pass = ‘admin’; $uptime_hostname = ‘uptimeserver.company.com’;

where $user & $pass is the credential used to acknowledge the alert. $uptime_hostname is the Uptime monitoring station

  1. Configure Alert Profile

Edit an alert profile and include the following link:

http://[UPTIME_HOSTNAME]/ack/ack.php?host=$HOSTNAME$&monitor=$SERVICENAME$&status=$SERVICESTATE$&msg=$OUTPUT$

Note: Substitute “[UPTIME_HOSTNAME]” for the external IP/hostname of the Uptime interface (the other values should not be modified; they will be updated when the alert profile is triggered). You can also place it on an external web server if required.

If the monitor name and/or alert message have spaces, one should also install the Enhanced Alert Profile Variables. Replace the above URL in the alert profile with the following:

http://[UPTIME_HOSTNAME]/ack/ack.php?host=$HOSTNAME$&monitor=$URLSERVICENAME$&status=$SERVICESTATE$&msg=$URLOUTPUT$
